Despite a good first half performance, Scotland's Under-15 girls were defeated 6-1 by Germany with three late goals eventually putting the game beyond their reach.
Scotland started brightly in the first game of the international challenge match double header, but fell behind early on when their hosts took a seventh minute lead.
Just a minute later, Scotland were right back in it when Celtic's Mairead Fulton scored arguably the best goal of the game, smashing the ball into the top corner from 25 yards.
Germany regained the lead on the 30th minute, but the visitors could be pleased with their first half performance.
Scotland held on after the restart and continued to show some excellent individual performances, with captain Claire Emslie and Ainsley Douglas playing particularly well. However Germany extended their lead in the 53rd minutes, and as Scotland began to tire, they added three more in the final eight minutes before the final whistle.
Scotland Coach Michael Jolley told www.scottishfa.co.uk: "I had mixed emotions at the final whistle. Obviously the result was very disappointing, but I don't think the score line tells the whole story.
"We played very well for most of the game, particularly in the first half, but tiredness eventually told and we lost three late goals. Overall, I think it was a good learning experience for the players, we put in some excellent individual performances, and Mairead's goal was a joy to watch."
